(comments of D. Buell) This photo is of USS Tuscaloosa (CA 37).
You can almost make out the number 37 on her bow with a good magnifying
glass. Since she was painted up in the same camouflage paint - Measure
ship's photographer, who may have not had ship recognition training,
probably took a quick shot and assumed that it was Indianapolis,
since it was taken same area, different day. At any rate, this is also
a good find, as photos of Tuscaloosa in the Pacific are relatively
rare, since she spent most of World War II in the Atlantic, and did
not join the Pacific fleet until the final push on Japan, joining the
3rd fleet in January 1945. Most photography of CA 37 was taken
in the Atlantic.
